Serving on a board can be very satisfying work. You provide time, commitment, and passion in service of a worthy goal. But in the quiet of the night, how certain are you that your board is truly adding value? How confident are you that the board is more than a rubber stamp for the CEO’s plans?

If you are a board member who has ever wondered about board chemistry, the difference between governance and micro-management, or how to think strategically, then this learning opportunity is a good fit for you. Participants will assess the overall functioning of their current board as well as look at best practices related to board governance. Everyone will leave with practical ideas to improve their current effectiveness as a board member. This session is ideal for attendance by several board members from the same organization.
